Carbon Potential

 

From the four principles of Regenerative Agriculture emerge a diversity of practices that progressively improve whole agroecosystems.

 

In terms of rapid and effective carbon sequestration, peer-reviewed research shows the below rates for the different practices.

PRACTICES – CARBON SEQUESTERED
(metric tons per hectare per year)

ORGANIC ANNUAL CROPPING (WITH COMPOST & CROP ROTATION)

2-6 MT / HA / YR

MANAGED GRAZING

0-4 MT / HA / YR

SILVOPASTURE

3-34 MT / HA / YR

PERENNIAL CROPS

1-26 MT / HA / YR

AGROFORESTRY

3-41 MT / HA / YR

Do you have other estimates for Carbon Sequestration from different Regenerative Agriculture Systems?
